Before you purchase your first gun there is a few things you need to know about buying a gun in Ireland. Your going to need a licence for the firearm of your choice. A licence is required for all firearms including Air Rifles. All firearm owners will need a safe place to store their gun. Current regulation says a single shotgun may be kept dismantled in its component pieces with a trigger lock. However any other firearm that is not a shotgun must be stored in a gun cabinet. Where an owner has more than one firearm a gun cabinet is also required. See FIREARMS (SECURE ACCOMMODATION) REGULATIONS 2009 for further details.

About eight months ago one of the most taken for granted firearms on the market became unavailable in Ireland. The humble Baikal shotgun from Russia could not be purchased due to the conflict in Ukraine (the Baikal is made in Russia). Thankfully the guns will shortly be available again here in Ireland. This is the first time I remember such a situation occurring. The shortage of the budget gun caused a conundrum as there is little else available on the world market to rival the Baikal in terms of quality, reliability and durability at a comparable price. The brands only weakness is in the woodwork which is a softwood and cannot take too much abuse and can crack, but at the price the guns sell at, something has to give ! This is a minor problem however and the baikal over compensates for this minor issue with the quality of the steel put into the guns.

Irishguntrader is happy to announce that the sale and demand for various firearms has been improving rapidly over the last twelve months. Having hit a low point in and around 2009 to 2011 we are happy to report a return to more normal trading patterns. Our advice if you are selling a firearm - Value - this at the moment is key, the market is recovering but buyers still have a wide choice so if you want a firearm sold, pitch the price at an attractive level. If you are in the market to buy - be realistic, shop around, get to know the values of the make and model you want and when you find a good match at the right price, by all means haggle but don't insult the seller or expect to buy it for next to nothing, things are improving, not everyone is desperate to sell ! Thanks for reading, The Irishguntrader.Read more about Gun Sales Pick Up As Economy Improves
